Very poor for tent campers. It's too close to the road and an airport. The site we were in was too far away from the bath house. Need another bath house on far side of campground. Good water pressure and clean bath house. Would be fine if in an rv, but would not recommend for tent campers. Also, there was not a fire ring in most of the tent sites.


Fire rings are standard at deluxe sites (which are also closest sites to the bath house). Regular sites allow for 'boy scout' style campfires or rings can be requested at the front desk on a first come, first serve basis. We hope you will try us again, perhaps in a deluxe to better suit your needs.

Simpel Campground. Good for RV's,come in the evening and leave in the morning. Not for tenting. Compliments for the GardenLady, beautiful

Location very convenient but tent sites have to contend with very loud traffic noise. Our site was quite muddy, too. Staff very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms clean, but there aren't enough of them. Pool area beautiful, but only accessible until 8 pm.

We will definitely be back to stay here! Loved every minute of it!

If this campground was in a different location it would be great very noisy and the tent spots are to close to the main Rd and the street lights shine into your tent and lights it up like it's daylight

We enjoyed our stay. We were just passing through the area and didn't want to pay for another motel so this worked out great!

At this KOA, the staff are very nice and the campground is very clean. It's a great place for family, pets, and CABIN and/or RV camping. However, we tent camped and I will warn you that road noise from the highway will be an issue if you don't bring ear plugs. They have placed those sites closest to the highway for whatever reason.

Everything was great, but the noise of the hwy and low flying planes.The staff was wonderful, the place was clean.

Good stay. No issues. WIFI was a little poor however didnt really require it. Let us check in earlier which was a plus for us.

Great people at checking, very helpful. Wonderful campground. Only problem was lack of wifi. Seems their wifi wasn't robust enough to handle the large number of people staying in the campground that night. They really need to upgrade their wifi.

Not a happy camper.Noise from hwy,dump trucks,planes and random trucks "cruising" the campground late at night was odd.The camping site next to us had a huge pit bull in a tent. I am surprised that they allow that. I am all for dogs camping but NOT in a tent where they could easily get out. Also the bathrooms and showers were gross.I have stayed at many KOA's with no problem. This KOA was he worst

We had fun... My daughter wanted a camping party for her 12th bday. It was the smallest one in town... so I would probably do a bigger one for a more "camping" experience.. but this was close to our house and perfect for a bday party.

Location was good. 2 nights of police in park after criminals was not. vagrants access the bathroom throughout the night. Need security change bath password & a locked gate would go far. Did not feel safe.

Everything was great, pool and restrooms very clean. Close to everywhere we wanted to go. Prices for ice and other items in the store very very reasonable. Staff was always pleasant and helpful.

A true koa experience

The only issues I had is that the women's room was not area conditioned like the men's room was. The men's room hadn't been cleaned in 3 days. They allowing of people from the trailer park next door to use the washer & dryer and bathroom facilities.

The campsites are right on top of each other. No fire rings. Tiny campsites. Barely any trees. It was right by a main road so the sound of traffic was horrible. For the price it should have been better. There is a free camp ground in Ohio that is 100 times better. I will never go to a koa again.

Evertone was amazing the staff was very nice the main one who stood out was Orlando he has a great attitude and very helpful the park was nice and very well maintained if we ever travel that way again this camp will be our place to stay away from home thank you

Itinerant workers stayed up late talking so loudly we couldn't enjoy a quiet evening.

Thankful for the service.

Staff was very friendly and helpful, the facilities were good, pool was very nice! Unfortunately the campground is right next to a loud 4 lane highway, so you hear cars and trucks and motorcycles while trying to sleep. Also there was a train that went by in the middle of every night of our stay(7nights)With its horn blaring. Along with the trains in the middle of the night were the large planes!

It was nasty trashy people wasn't nice Crack heads smoking crack in the bathroom The showers wasn't clean our camp site was dirty A very small camp site and a trailer park beside it I would never go back or tell anyone to this camp site.__

I enjoyed my stay very much. The campground overall was clean and neat in appearance. The staff was courteous, friendly and accommodating. My only complaint is about something that is out of your hands, it's the hwy and I-26 noise. I usually stay in a cabin and haven't noticed it, This stay, I camped in a tent, which was located closest to the hwy. Even with the noise, I'd still stay again tho.

Unexpected traffic delays caused us to be a few hours late to check in. We called ahead and the staff responded by taping our site info on the office door. We greatly appreciated this. The facility and grounds were clean and very well kept. We can't wait to come back!

Site was littered with stumps, roots, fallen limbs, cigarrette butts, and trash. Upon arrival, I found my assigned site was being used as a parking lot by the 8 -10 drunk college kids-which I had to confront because the office was closed. They had apparently been allowed to do this for 2 days.

We liked the pool area and thought the staff was nice but that's about it. As a tent camper the site was horrible and expensive. Needs more trees less highway noise and space further away from neighbors.


We do offer tent sites along the woodline. They are further from the restroom and pool. We are always happy to swap available sites upon request.

We enjoyed our stay. We are already planning another visit


We look forward to your return!

Great hospitality and very accommodating!

Staff was friendly upon check in. Campground was clean and maintained except men's bathroom. Enjoyed our spot as far as area it was clean and well maintained but very noisy we must have been not but a quarter of a mile in right next to a major road.and right next to an airport.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Place was clean. I think this is probably more of a campground for people either passing through or need a cheap place to stay/live for awhile. Was very crowded and noisy. We will probably go elsewhere for a fun family getaway. But was overall a good experience.

Bathroom situation could be better.
Apr 19, 2016
spaces were way too close together facilities and staff were good - not really a camping experience, more of a place to park for the night ps: I never recommend anything to anyone ever

Quick stop on the way north; staff was friendly, grounds were beautiful and bathrooms and pool were clean. Road noise was a bit much but there isn't anything you can do about that. We have never used KOA before but we definitely will in the future. We are tent campers and tent sites are getting harder and harder to find.

Trop dispendieux pour la qualité ordinaire. Le site est tassé, les toilettes malpropres; l'eau et l'électricité sont fournis heureusement. Il faudrait rénover les installations pour charger ce tarif.

friendly staff, nice place simple, what I expected

I liked that I could leave my trash at the site in a bag and the staff would pick it up. It was nice having ice there to purchase. We had a quiet sleep and enjoyed the atmosphere even though it was full with other campers.
Nov 09, 2015
only problem we encountered was that the bathrooms were being cleaned just before checkout...around 10 am. i think it would be more convenient for the cleaning to be done lots earlier or after check out time. also, it is the first campground i have stayed in that didn't have a locked gate at the entrance which always makes me feel safer.

The problem is the location it is in an industrial area and the FULL TIME residents are not friendly at all. The grounds are pretty dirty and cramped.
Sep 15, 2015
We had a great time. The whole place was quiet and very clean. I have not been to a KOA in over 20 years when I was a kid. We enjoyed it so much we are getting a membership.

I spoke with the office staff several times on the phone prior to our arrival and they were always extremely nice and helpful. The campground itself fine. It did look like it could use a little TLC and maintenance in general. The campsites were small but adequate for what we needed.

Pool & facilities were good. People were good. 25 min to the beach. Easy highway access Campsite was too loud. located beside the highway, near an airport & trains!!! Didn't sleep well in a tent.
